I'm on the pill and ive recently noticed some differences. My period came on the same day as it usually does but about 8 hours earlier than usual. That was tuesday....usually it ends after about 5 days or so, but nearly a week later im still experiencing a bit of bleeding. Is this anything to worry about? I havent experienced so much variation in the timing of things and ive been on it for about 8 months now. I've taken it correctly this cycle as far as i can think, so im not really sure what could have caused the difference. Anything to worry about?

I doubt it. You won't always start your period at the exact same time on the exact same day every single month. Our bodies are just too varied to do that. The pill will regulate it, but you are still subject to changes in your hormones that occur from diet, stress, environment, exercise, and anything else that funks with your period.

ahhh ok! i just get a little paranoid about these things sometimes, worried that something had gone wrong! Well i was away from home for a couple of days in a stressful situation so i guess that must have done something...weird how these things work [Razz]
